Danish: En meget fyldig Russian Imperial Stout på 12% alk. Den er brygget i oktober 2008 af 7 af de bedste bryggere i Danmark, som en blanding af de 7 bryggeres egne opskrifter af øllen. Efter gæring har denne øl lagret 7 måneder i Bordeaux fade af amerikansk eg. Resultatet er en intens, kompleks krop og en aroma, hvor vanille, eg og ristede malte er gennemtrængende. Smagen er stor, tør og blød med solid bitterhed og en lang, ristet eftersmag med vanille og egesødme.

English: Seven Bordeaux Barrel is a very rich Russian Imperial Stout, brewed in October 2008 by 7 of the best brewers in Denmark as a pooling of their individual recipes for the beer. After primary fermentation, this fraction of the brew was racked into an American oak barrel from a Bordeaux winery. After 7 (!) months in the barrel, the beer is intensely complex, full bodied with protruding vanilla, oaky and roasted aromas and flavours. Bitter, dry and smooth on the palate with a long vanilla aftertaste.

Ungstrup (34636) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2011
Bottled - entered and drunk again to celebrate my rating number 19,900. A pitch black beer with a lazing dark brown head. The aroma has strong notes of roasted malt, chocolate, alcohol, and wine, as well as lighter notes of wood and soy sauce. The flavor is sweet though with a slight acidic edge from the roasted malt and with notes of roasted malt, wood, chocolate, wine, and some alcohol, leading to a very dry, woody, and alcoholic finish.

oh6gdx (25449) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 25, 2009
Bottled (thanks brunnsbe!). Black colour, small brown head. Aroma is mild wine, some coffee as well as some slight alcoholic notes. Rather wooden as well. Flavour is quite much the same with very big time coffee and vanilla towards the finish and aftertaste. A bit sweet, otherwise a really nicely balanced barrel aged brew.

Opaque black beer. Short chocolate coloured head. Soft palate, fairly dry. Rich dark malt. Dark unsweet chocolate and coffee. Undertone of plummy fruits, minerals and spice. The red wine is subtle and somewhat out muscled by the Impy Stout characteristics. Gets a little more winey as it warms up. Hangs together pretty well.
